Serving ministries has been in the DNA of Christian Community Credit Union since it’s founding. They offer not only CD’s but also ministry checking, savings, church property mortgages, equipment loans, construction loans, church plant lending, and more.
Caid says, “Pastors and ministries need to know that there’s a financial institution that not only understands and respects them, but actually invests back into them. With every dollar we are entrusted with, we use it as means to provide affordable lending for churches. We have many members who were with more traditional big banks and found it very refreshing and empowering to go with a biblical institution that understands that unique challenges of ministry.”
Beyond the lending is also the giving. CCCU also offers a credit card that not only enables 1.5% cash back with every purchase, but also gives to Christian charities with each purchase as well. They are also actively working on new innovations and models that will enable even greater investments back into local church partners. To date, CCCU has give over $900,000 to Christian charities.
Missional alignment is certainly an increasing priority for ministry leaders and individual consumers alike as CCCU spearheaded a recent survey which found that over 30% of over 1,300 of professed Christians surveyed have considered switching banks in the past 12 months. Alignment with Christian values was in the top 3 reasons why.
“This research confirms what we were hearing from our own members and ministry partners that there seems to be an ever-increasing tension with how big banks conduct themselves and what they stand for. We even have members who were rejected consideration of funding simply because they were a church,“ states Nick Lacy, AVP of Marketing who oversaw the research.
“It doesn’t need to be this way,” Lacy adds. “We hope all ministry leaders will find CCCU to be a financial partner they can trust, because we actually support the advancement of the Gospel and don’t silence it.”
